  1. The initial database size really doesn't matter. After I upgraded to 4.1, I also upgraded to PHP7 which seems to have helped greatly in making my site fast.
  2. Try it on what you have. If you get so much traffic you have to move to a new server, consider that a good thing.
  3. If you're just starting a new site, go with 4.1.
  4. I don't get how you could undo deletion of the formatting after you've already tossed it.
  5. Which update are you waiting for? There are sometimes two updates a month.
  6. Many mods are still just waiting to be caught up to the new platform yet.
  7. What's new and exciting for me is that as of 4.1.14b6 I'm able to get through an upgrade of my 13 year old database with ZERO errors. To me that is yuuuge! It means I am really close to finally being to upgrade my production site to the 4.x series. I really appreciate the new level of care and caution that IPS is using with the latest batches of releases. New features are fine, but some of us old-timers were getting left behind on 3.4 due to upgrade issues.
  8. To what end? What does it get IPS or the customers if it is custom to their framework?
  9. The minute IPS does that, people would complain that it doesn't have this feature or that feature or this look or that look. By using a 3rd party, IPS doesn't have to deal with all of that... and if someone needs a plug-in IPS can point to the CKE add-on and say "knock yourself out" instead of having to program something. Are there downsides to this? Sure, but I think the positives vastly outweigh the negatives.
  10. That's *really* important information that I was unaware of. Maybe make put a note in the software saying "Don't use this if you're using Cron"?
  11. The patch worked, thank you. My newsletter just went out for the first time since the patch.
  12. *bump* - any fix for the missing unsubscribe link?
  13. I was really hoping it would just duplicate the process from 3.4. I promote the post to an article and all of the other posts become comments, the thread remains because that is where my comments are stored for all articles.
  14. So.. I'm running another test upgrade today and it went back to this fall back process again. I did what you said, back out to the main upgrader and restart the upgrade process. It used the main screen for a bit and then fell back again. My server load is really low (0.48), so not sure what the issue could be.
